It was expected for weeks, but is now official: Pia Toscano is a recording artist.
The beloved American Idol finalist has reportedly signed with Interscope Records, according to producer Antonina Armato. He told ABC News Radio this week:
"We just finished a song with her called ‘Counterfeit,’ which is phenomenal... and we did another song for her as well.”
Toscano, of course, was eliminated from Idol far sooner than many fans believed she should have been. But things have gone well for Pia since: she's planning an album for 2011 and she has found herself a handsome new boyfriend.
